The Lord restored us – we were freed

The Lord restored us – we were freed:
our life was like a dream!
We laughed and sang; the heathen said,
‘The Lord did this for them.’

2. The Lord had done great things for us,
as every eye could see;
he made our thankful hearts rejoice,
he set the captives free!

3. Restore us, Lord, again, we pray:
make desert waters spring;
for those that sow in tears today
at harvest time shall sing.

4. The sower who goes forth and grieves
to see such barren ground
shall carry home his golden sheaves,
while songs of joy resound.
